Braised Spicy Chicken (닭볶음탕) 

Dak-bokkeum-tang (닭볶음탕) or braised spicy chicken is a traditional Korean dish made by boiling chunks of chicken with vegetables and spices. The ingredients are sometimes stir-fried before being boiled.[2] It is a jjim or jorim-like dish, and the recipe varies across the Korean peninsula. Common ingredients include potatoes, carrots, green and red chili peppers, dried red chili peppers, scallions, onions, garlic, ginger, gochujang (chili paste), gochutgaru (chili powder), soy sauce, and sesame oil.

Steamed Rice with Potato (감자밥)

For healthy nutrition, Koreans add various kinds of grains when they cook rice. Seamed rice mixed with potato is another type of rice for Korean.

Egg Soup (계란탕) – a light boiled soup with stir eggs 

Guk (국), also sometimes known as tang (탕; 湯), is a class of soup-like dishes in Korean cuisine. Guk and tang are commonly grouped together and regarded as the same type of dish, although tang can sometimes be less watery than guk. It is one of the most basic components in a Korean meal, along with bap (rice), and banchan (side dishes).

Guk is a native Korean word, while tang is a Sino-Korean word that originally meant “boiling”. Tang has been used as an honorific term in place of guk, when it denotes the same meaning as guk as in yeonpo-tang (octopus soup), daegu-tang (codfish soup), or jogae-tang (clam soup). Generally, the names of lighter soups with vegetables are suffixed with -guk, while heavier, thicker soups made with more solid ingredients used in jesa (ancestral rites) are often referred to as tang. Gamja-guk (potato soup) and gamja-tang (pork back-bone stew) are different dishes; the potato soup can be called gamjeo-tang.

Green Pepper Gimchi stir with soybean paste

There are so many type of Gimchi and this is one of them. Sliced sweet green pepper also can be another type of Gimch when it mixed with soybean paste. It can be an excellent taste when combines with steamed rice.
